Step 1: Wash towel with baking soda
Throw your towel into the washing machine with a 1/4 cup baking soda.

You can throw in any other like-colored laundry with the towel to run a full load.

Step 2: Run wash
Run the washing machine using hot water. Allow it to complete a full wash cycle.

Step 3: Pour vinegar into washer
Pour 1/4 cup white vinegar into the washing machine with your regular detergent.

Step 4: Run wash cycle
Run the wash cycle again, using hot water.

Step 5: Dry towel
Place the towel, along with any other laundry you choose, into the dryer to dry on the hottest setting. Use the longest setting to ensure the towel dries thoroughly.

Make sure any laundry you put into the dryer with the towel is safe to dry on the hot setting.

Step 6: Check towel for dryness
Check the towel to make sure it is completely dry before folding and putting it away. Take a good sniff of your fluffy towel the next time you bathe and enjoy the non-funkiness.
